BATGIRL Stars Michael Keaton And Brendan Fraser Express Disappointment Over The Movie's Cancelation

Batgirl stars Michael Keaton and Brendan Fraser have finally shared their thoughts on Warner Bros. Discovery's decision to scrap the movie, and neither actor seems particularly impressed. Check it out...

Warner Bros. Discovery cancelled Batgirl in an effort to save money, deeming it unworthy of a theatrical release and not a worthwhile investment for HBO Max. The response to the news from fans was overwhelmingly negative, while those involved with the movie have also expressed disappointment with the studio's decision.

Michael Keaton's Batman was set to appear in the movie, though now it's no longer set to be released, we don't know what the plan is. This Caped Crusader is still part of The Flash, but we now wouldn't be surprised if it's a one-and-done appearance (especially as Keaton has already been replaced by Ben Affleck in Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom). 

Talking to journalists after his recent win at the SAG Awards (via Deadline), Keaton was asked for his thoughts on the decision to scrap Batgirl

"I think it was a business decision," he responded. "It was a film, it was a good one." It sounds like the actor is definitely disappointed, and when the same reporter wondered when we'll see him as Batman again, Keaton said, "Oh, a little later tonight. No, I’m kidding. I don’t know. I really have no idea."

It turns out he's not the only one upset that Batgirl has been shelved as Brendan Fraser has similarly weighed in on what was clearly a misstep by Warner Bros. Discovery.

"The fans really wanted to see this film made," he says. "Leslie Grace is a dynamo. The movie was shot and conceived for a smaller screen. In this age that we’ve come out of now between streaming service versus theatrical release, it wound up being the canary in the coal mine."

We'd also recommend watching the second video below as the actor manages to have a little fun about the movie's cancellation, clearly taking it in his stride at this point in his career.
